BOOM! Studios Reveals Rare Variant Covers from Kaiti Infante for the Most Anticipated ReVAMP of 2019 

BOOM! Studios today revealed new #TeamSlayer and #TeamVamp variant covers by illustrator Kaiti Infante, featuring beloved character Willow Rosenberg, for the highly anticipated BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1. The series debuts in comic shops on January 23, 2019 in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

As Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Klaus, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), and series creator/story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more) reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon from the very beginning, readers will meet a Buffy Summers like the one they know – trying to make friends at her new school, get decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends...and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.

Now every reader must choose a side and join the fight between Good and Evil - will you stand with the Chosen One (#TeamSlayer) or will you side with the Vampires (#TeamVamp)? You can show your true allegiance in two special variant covers from illustrator Kaiti Infante. One cover depicts fan favorite Willow Rosenberg as Buffy’s best friend and stalwart Scooby. The other spotlights a terrifying possible version of her: the evil and remorseless Vampire Willow.

You can also track down two special interactive variant covers from acclaimed artist Miguel Mercado (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) that can be held up to your face to reveal your inner Slayer or inner Demon!

“Willow is the heart of the Scooby gang but as devoted fans of Buffy know, she has a dark and deadly side to her as well,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Kaiti had no problem at all handling both sides of Willow: both the gentle, fuzzy but brave Scooby and the deep, dark evil version lurking within the vampire. Now it’s just up to fans to choose who they really are deep down inside and pick a side.”

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 also features main covers by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, superstar Kevin Wada (She-Hulk) and Royal Dunlap (Spitball), along with variant covers by Becca Carey (Bitch Planet), and Jen Bartel (Blackbird).

Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered on the WB Network on March 10th, 1997. The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series, which ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.” Chosen to battle vampires, demons and other forces of darkness, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides and teaches her as she surrounds herself with a circle of friends called the “Scooby Gang.”

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Joss Whedon’s Firefly, Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Print copies of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 will be available for sale on January 23rd, 2019 exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
